To The Daily Sun,
I am writing in response to Steve Earle's letter titled "Liberals Can't Come to Grips Why Hillary Lost the Election.".
Mr. Earle stated that he "read that Czechoslovakia's House (equivalent to our House of Representatives) has reaffirmed their constitutional right of citizens to keep arms," while citing their violent history as the reason why. Regarding their history, and not so incidentally, Czechoslovakia dissolved into two separate nations in 1993, forming the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. These nations have a combined population of over 15 million people, and gained their independence from communist rule 24 years ago. In all fairness, I did not have these statistics at the tip of my tongue, I had to spend a moment reading about them. However I know enough to read the word "Czechoslovakia" and slam on the breaks. Hopefully the vast majority of those who read the original column did the same.
